A certain lady took a picture of her friend and then told him:
We'll stop on the way into town at a photo place. And then I'll need to grab a laminator and some other supplies.
What does "photo place" mean? Is there any other name for it?
A photo place is a shop or store where your photos can be developed and printed from film, or more often nowadays, where there is a machine for you to process and print your own digital photos.
In the UK, I use the name of a store which has such a machine, such as Tesco, and in the USA I say 'I'm going to Walgreens to order some prints'.
